    Are there any app for Windows Phone 8 where you can customize the ringtone for incoming sms/text?
    The default set of tones are too short and sometimes an incoming sms went unnoticeable. Would be better if there's an app for this.
    Like if you agree :D

    WP 8 doesn't allow us to set our own custom notifications for incoming SMS and there are no apps that allow this either. Hopefully, this feature will be introduced in a future update.

    You can't.
    M$ thinks customizing SMS tones is a serious risk for your security. It prefers you miss them. They have also evaluated removing SMS support, I guess.
